23 11 2010

This video from Russia Today shows how easy it is to access methane gas locked under Siberian ice.

According to RT methane gas locked inside Siberia’s frozen soil and under its lakes is currently being released at a dangerous rate. Russian scientists believe it can pose threat to the world’s climate, however the lack of data over a long period of time casts uncertainty over the extent of the threat.

More than 50 billion tons of methane could be unleashed from Siberian lakes according to RT.
